There’s always someone lurking in the bushes, as it were, waiting to be “Oh ffended” … waiting to pounce!
We have sunk to a new low in sniveling Political Correctness. Yes boys ‘n girls our ubiquitous Chia pets cannot mingle one with the other because the new Obama Chia pet is racist! SAY WHAT? What lunatic hospital let these people out? Can you people get a life?
Walgreens has removed a Barack Obama version of the Chia Pet from its stores.
The Deerfield-headquartered drugstore chain made the move Friday after getting a few complaints about the item since the product”s April 1 launch, a spokeswoman said.
Chia founder Joseph Pedott — a Chicago native whose San Francisco-based Joseph Enterprises provides local jobs for the disabled — said he was inspired to create the Obama head as a show of patriotism
Maybe its just me, but I didn’t find the Obama Chia offensive. After all haven’t most of us received one of these little critters at least once in out lives? Usually you could tell it was from someone who decided to go to a drugstore for a last minute gift (under $10 bucks) and saw the Chia displays at the checkout counter.
Personally in my humble opinion, if the manufacturers had come out with one of those wall mounted singing fishes, put an afro on it, and called it an Obama Singing Bass . . . that might have been what? Funny, perhaps?
At least the White House didn’t put out a press release condemning the the newest addition to American kitsch. AND blessedly, Joe Biden did not regale us with his story about how Chia Pet people came to him with an idea for a Biden Buffoon Chia and he said, “look behind you Mr. President no one is following.” Opps, looks like Joe got his stories mixed up, again.
